As our business grows, so does our list of exciting quilting and sewing titles. QuiltWoman.com is happy to announce the release of the 3 newest book titles, available in October 2010. Let us share them with you, in no particular order. You can purchase them from our website or stop by our booths (#359, 361, 363, 365, 367) at the Houston International Quilt Market.
|Gather ‘Round the Table is one of our newest titles which features 12 different table runner patterns. The designs are easy to follow and coordinate with each month, though clever fabric choices could make any of the patterns perfect for any season. Prepare to jazz-up any table in your home.
Excerpt: “This book came about because my customers asked me to design something ‘smaller than a quilt.’ ”
What a great idea! The book is authored by Cynthia Stary Drajna of Iowa Star Designs. The book features a full-color gallery section where we’ve included a couple samples of each pattern, in different fabrics, to kick-start your creativity.
|Soldier’s Pride & More is an amazing book focused on historic and antique quilt patterns from the time of World War II. The author, Karen Dever, has shared a piece of history, a bit of patriotism and a whole heap of quilting with this title.
One unique element in this book is that it’s not only an “antique quilt book” nor is it just a “pattern book”, it is a rich history of Americana complete with images of members of the United States Military and a thorough list of organizations who support our troops through quilted donations.
| One Unit Mystery is your very own “who dun it” surprise ending. In fact, it’s so mysterious, that we didn’t want to give away any details in the cover. If you, your shop, your guild/bee or friends love the thrill of working on a mystery quilt, this book is for you! You will be astonished at the simplicity and clarity these stunning quilts present. Author, Joan Bassett has done a great job keeping the suspense alive.
From the author: “New to quilting or a pro this book will intrigue you. Not your typical, traditional, block. This new, simple and quick, magical unit is very different and creates eleven, all pieced, mysterious patterns. Choose from table runners, wall quilts, plus options for more.”
